Window shopping a vertical farm

The front window of the Athenaeum bookstore in Amsterdam is being transformed into a WUR-themed display over the next two weeks. Not only does it showcase photos of food and agriculture, it also features items such as a custom-made vertical farm. The display window is being decorated as a way of familiarising the major urban centres in the west of the Netherlands regarding important Wageningen research domains in celebration of the hundred-year anniversary of Wageningen University & Research.

Would you like to take a look at the bookstore yourself? That is no problem at all. Virtual visitors can also get a preview of this special display window via a webcam. Of course, there is no space large enough to house a complete representation of what the experts in Wageningen are working on, but it does provide others with an idea of the hundreds of research projects that are currently under way.
